The three winners of K-Global Demo Day were VR eye-tracking startup Visual Camp, conversational AI startup MrS.ai and blockchain money remittance startup Moin. K-Global demo day is part of the South Korean government’s effort to foster interaction between South Korean startups and Chinese startups.

On the day itself, December 12, five Chinese startups and 10 Korean startups climbed on stage at Shanghai’s Jin Jiang Hotel to pitch to five judges including Strikingly CEO David Chen, partner at NIO Capital Junyi Zhang, Vice President of Sky9 Capital (云九资本), Fred Young and Professor and Adviser to International BU, III. C. Jimmy Shih. The event was hosted by K-ICT Born2Global Centre, a startup incubator operated by South Korea’s Ministry of Science and ICT (MSIT) and organized by Shanghai-based startup accelerator XNODE.

“There are two startups winning second place. Moin, the first one, is using an emerging technology that could disrupt the current system. Although China has a very strict law on financial matters, she is accepting new technology until proved otherwise. The next one, MrS.ai, uses a natural language technology specializing in Mandarin, that could better fit to the Chinese market,” Professor and Adviser to International BU, III. C. Jimmy Shih commented on each company as he announced the winners of the demo day. “The first place goes to VisualCamp whose technology will be a strike to most mobile commerce in the future.”
